Austria - Vienna and Surroundings
May-June 2013

Back to Trip Index

This was our 3rd time visiting Vienna,
but the first with our long-time friends
We toured Schoenbrun Palace
and walked the beautiful grounds.
We visited the landmark sites - St Stephen's Cathedral
and the monument in thanksgiving for the end of the plague
We toured the famous opera house
Classical music is celebrated all over the city
but we didn't expect to find it here!
The City Park was lovely
Sculpture recreated the medieval city
We had dinner at a traditional Viennese restaurant
where I was invited to join in the entertainment (yodeling, seriously!)
This monastery has a plain exterior
but a rich interior

Then when you least expect it, you come upon a touch of USA

We've seen many different sides of Vienna in previous trips

Many not on regular tourist itineraries
